What are the symptoms of a wart?
Warts are most common in children and adolescents, though adults may be affected as well. The appearance of your wart will depend on the strain of HPV causing it, as well is its location on the body. In general, warts appear as small, thickened lumps (growths) on the skin. They often contain tiny black spots, which are small, clotted blood vessels. Warts may occur anywhere on the body, including your face, hands, feet or genital area.
What is cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy, also known as cryosurgery, uses liquid nitrogen – a cold liquefied gas – to essentially “freeze off” your wart. Freezing your wart is performed for 5 to 60 seconds, until the wart is completely covered in liquid nitrogen. Liquid nitrogen may cause stinging and mild pain during treatment, but discomfort typically subsides within a few minutes. A numbing agent may be administered prior to your procedure to minimise discomfort.

There is no downtime associated with cryotherapy. Full activity may be resumed immediately following treatment. During recovery the treatment area may swell and blister. Your wart will eventually come off as a scab, revealing healthy new skin underneath. The recovery process may take a few weeks. Additionally, you may need a total of 3 to 4 cryotherapy treatments to get rid of your wart. Treatment sessions are typically performed in 1 to 4 week intervals.

Will I be left with a scar after treatment?
In general, scarring should be minimal or non-existent following treatment.* Other potential side-effects may include bleeding, redness, swelling, blister formation, temporary pigmentation changes or hair loss in the treatment area. All of these risks will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
Can warts return after treatment?
Warts are known to be resilient, so the treatment of common warts can be challenging. Most warts are permanently removed after one treatment, but there are no guarantees when it comes to wart removal. You may require more than one treatment session with cryotherapy for permanent removal.
Can you treat warts when you are pregnant?
Though not usually recommended, it is possible to treat external warts during pregnancy using cryotherapy. Certain topical treatments may be toxic to the baby, so it is important to speak with a healthcare professional prior to undergoing any wart removal treatments during pregnancy.
